    Shepard Fairey - A Shepard Who Gives A Flock

    Artist/Activist Shepard Fairey (creator of Obey Giant, the Obama “Hope" poster, and the iconic "Andre the Giant" image) gets Frank about why he almost added an asterisk to an Ozzy Osbourne tour poster; the outrage he felt as a boy when the Village People’s “YMCA” fell off the top of the charts; and the reason “Diabetic” is his only tattoo.
